  • Excellent quality

    I am a tough customer to please. I am constantly accused of being OCD. Simply put, this piece is top-quality. It looks like an $800 book shelf. It has very deep shelves, and is about 7+ feet tall. I'm 6' 1", and used to being able to see the tops of furniture. It's very nice to have such a quality piece. Every part of it is wood, down to the backdrop (the backdrop is about a centimeter thick or so, but is solid wood). VERY heavy, and just quality. Thank you overstock! By the way...I bought the plymouth desk to accompany this bookshelf. They look excellent together! Top-notch.

  • Sturdy and Stylish

    Once it's put together, this is a sturdy and very stylish piece of furniture. The assembly process isn't difficult, just a bit tedious. It took me about an hour to put the bookcase together. Just be careful to make sure to pound the pieces together snugly before you twist the lock nuts. If you don't, small gaps will remain between pieces that could affect the stability. It would also be a good idea to have a second person to help, since these big boys weigh about 140 pounds when built. Overall, this is an excellent product and a good value. As always, the Overstock delivery service is quick and the packaging leaves you with enough foam and cardboard to build a weekend retreat.

  • Nice solid furniture

    I ordered two bookcases, which arrived very quickly and intact as has been my usual experience with Overstock orders. These are large, heavy bookcases. They are solid, and the finish is beautiful. It is the darkest brown, and it blends with the black-finish furniture also in my study. They really look black unless the sunlight is on them, when you can see the brown come through. Not difficult to put together, and they really don't look like furniture that we assembled at home! I've come to expect strong chemical smells from imported home-assembled furniture, but these bookcases had none so we were pleasantly surprised. Nice, tall, solid bookcases that look like they came from a fine furniture store, and the style will blend with anything from modern to traditional. I'm thinking of ordering one or two more!

  • Terrific!

    This bookshelf is a sturdy, attractive piece with huge space (my tallest books can stand up) between shelves. They are also quite deep. It took me and one friend about an hour to put together. It is heavy and takes two people to move the boxes and to stand up.

  • Solid bookcase

    Great tall bookcase. Quality wise this thing is great. Color looks black but is a dark espresso. Only way you'd know is direct sunlight. It matches black trimmed seating very well. The only cons are very minor and come with putting it together. 1. The little inserts that the shelfs rest on, some of them had the heads just a little big for the holes. It's just a little piece of metal that is either from where they cut the pieces or hammered them in manufacturing. Easily fixed with a file or with a pair of wire cutters. Note I only had this problem on 3 of them. The rest went in (with some twisting). 2. The back piece is folded in half (for shipping) and taped on the backside. Problem with this is that the foam that it's packed in stuck to the tape inbetween the two pieces. Took a couple minutes to get it all off. Overall it's a great book case and a great value. The two very minor problems shouldn't keep you from getting this if you like the style.

    I am so very satisfied with this purchase; I converted my dining room into a library and the bookcase was an awesome purchase. It looks so very nice!

  • Great looking bookcase

    I really like the height and depth of this bookcase. It looks more expensive than it is and it is solid wood. It was not too difficult to put together and arrived on the day it was expected. Great quality and would recommend this bookcase.

  • beautiful

    This is probably one of the best pieces of furniture I own. It is well made, sturdy, looks great and durable. I would store all of my medical books on the shelves and they did not bow or break. Have recommended the product to many people and would definitely purchase this again if I needed!!!

  • Beautiful and Great Quality!

    This bookcase arrived in 2 boxes and was packed well and in excellent condition. The quality is excellent and it looks high end. Not one scratch on anything. The backing board is hefty--not flimsy. Forget Ashley and other low quality veneer furniture sellers. You'll need to sit and read the through the assembly instructions and take your time putting it together. You'll need 2 people to set it upright and put it in place. It's heavy. All pieces fit together well. The instructions say you need to use some special allen wrentch/hex key but you can just use a flat head screw driver. Our only issue, which was small, was some of the shelf pegs were flared at the end and we couldn't slide them in, so we just ground down the flared part. No biggie. (We could have gone to the store and bought new ones I suppose.) The bookcase is in our formal living room with a grand piano. Looks great. It is not made in China. I think it said Indonesia. I highly recommend this bookcase.

  • strong AND beautiful

    My husband is an avid reader and has books from the time he discovered reading as a child to now in his 60's. We have bookcases in every room! I bought 4 of these cases and he put them together in a couple of days and filled them to full capacity and is still buying more books (God help me). They are very sturdy and strong and made from rubber wood which is extremely strong and beautiful, and to think that they just burned this wood because they thought it was trash wood!!! STUPID!!! I have several pieces besides the bookcase made from rubber wood. Will be able to hand these down the family line, that's how awesome it is.

A TV won't fit, unless its a 9" one. The width is about 30 inches, height about 10 inches between shelves. This is a bookshelf and I am able to fit two wine racks in it, as well as momentous from sporting events, beer steins, bobble heads, and sport team blankets. olyaz on May 28, 2013

I'm going to guess about 16 inches. Nice depth. Holds a wine rack comfortably, so the length of a bottle, with the top of the neck sticking out just a bit. olyaz on May 28, 2013

Is the back-piece the usual cheap, cardboard-thick (sometimes cardboard itself with vinyl on it) like on Ikea bookshelves and most others, or is it actual 1/4" thick wood paneling like the Avington Bookshelf from Target? I was pleasantly surprised with that shelf because of that and will now buy nothing with the thin back panel, so I'd like to know. Thanks. kreidol on Jan 3, 2013
